Egocentrism and Adjustment.
Milcic, Diane; Karmos, Joseph S.
The purpose of this research was to investigate relationships between egocentrism and personal and social adjustment for students in grades four through six. Almost 200 students participated in the study. The results showed that: (1) Less egocentric children tended to be better adjusted. (2) Overall, personal adjustment was moderately related to sociometric scores. (3) Personal adjustment scores were moderately related to sociometric scores at the sixth grade level. (4) For the entire sample, the correlations for egocentrism with self-concept, locus of control, and attitude toward school were low. (Author)
